I'm officially the family wet blanket and jerk.
I was supposed to drive over to my sister's wedding o some 300 miles away. No way, I pinched a nerve last night and I can barely walk this morning. I took some relaxers to ease my discomfort, but of course you can't drive with relaxers.
I guess I'll have to accept the shunning for a bit - unfortunately no one in my family (except my sister - who understands my predicament) has ever hurt their back.
How many people here get more than a little abuse from friends and family who simply don't appreciate your condition?
